The eHealth Initiative, a Washington-based stakeholder advocacy group, has released the first of three new enhancements to its Health Information Exchange Toolkit.

Available now is a primer addressing steps for starting an HIE, including creating a governance model, drafting legal and information sharing agreements, and protecting patient privacy, among other issues, along with sample products.

An enhancement in May will address creating a sustainable model, technical aspects of connectivity, marketing, enhancing services and tracking progress. A third enhancement later this year will cover new market development including Affordable Care Act provisions and the value of data analytics.
